Dance. Dream. Grow.
Genesee Dance Theatre inspires and nurtures young artists. From first steps as a toddler to taking a bow on the professional stage, we believe dance has the power to change lives.
As the only professional dance company in the Genesee Valley, our resident performing company strives to entertain and enrich local audiences through classical and contemporary ballet productions. The youth training program gives children the opportunity to study ballet at a high level while performing in the community.
The Genesee Dance Theatre youth training program is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide
the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels.
Pre-Primary through Level 3 will be taught by ABT® Certified Teacher, Sarah Keeler, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 3 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum.
From preschool to pre-professional, we offer superior dance training for everyone!
Professional dancers from throughout New York state join with local performers to create entertaining dance productions, including our celebrated annual production of The Nutcracker. Past performances have also included Peter and the Wolf, excerpts from The Sleeping Beauty and numerous original ballets.
